Man Charged in Putnam and Killingly Bomb Threat

State police have arrested a Danielson man accused of a bomb threat.

State police responded to United Services, a mental health services facility on North Main Street in Killingly, at 10:42 a.m. to investigate a report of a man heading over in a taxi with an explosive in his backpack.

Staff from United Services identified the man as Floyd Lambert, 54, of Danielson, according to police.

Neighbors then reported that Lambert showed them a bag in his backpack that looked like a bomb.

During the investigation, police determined that Lambert called for a taxi from Generations Health Care in Putnam, so police responded there and arrested Lambert, who was at the facility with a backpack, officials said. 

Lambert told police he didn’t have an explosive device and said there had been a misunderstanding between him and his therapist, police said.

That facility was also evacuated and no explosive was found. Police also searched Lambert’s home and didn’t find anything dangerous.

He has been charged with breach of peace and was released on $5,000 bond.
